My 8 year old daughter is obsessed with these.. she’s constantly working out how much money she has, and what cards she can buy. She swaps at school, and she keeps a close eye on ebay.. especially for her favourites, the ‘ultra-rares’.
From yesterday, there is a now a new collection.. 225 new ‘Invader’ cards. Most kids are still frantically trying to complete their existing collection.. and now there are new ones! As a parent, I was very unimpressed that a new set was coming out already.. it’s yet more money making for them.
However, I do have to admit that I’m also a little bit excited. I love Dr Who, and the cards are actually rather good fun. And this lot will have The Master in! 😉 So, I’ve bought the initial magazine and pack for her.. so off we go again!
Of course, not being content with cards, she also likes the stickers. Friends st school have kindly passed on lots of doubles, so she hasn’t actually bought that many yet.. and they are cheaper. In my day, it was football stickers.. my friend and I collected them, then sat deciding which ones we fancied! LOL
How about you and your young ones.. what was around when you were at school, and what do your children like now?
